Overview

Since its launch in 1990, BREEAM (the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) has stimulated a greener built environment.

But what do those involved in commissioning BREEAM assessments actually think of the scheme?

This report is based on independent research funded by Schneider Electric and undertaken by BSRIA with help from BRE Global. It assesses the value that can be derived from a consistent approach to measuring and benchmarking the design and performance of buildings. Face-to-face and telephone surveys of client opinions were conducted along with web surveys of construction professionals and the supply chain.

Of those surveyed, an overwhelming 88% think that BREEAM is a good thing although improvements could be made. The report found that the most value could be gained by thinking about BREEAM at project inception.
